"Personally, I could care less what other people think," Sutter said in a conference call from Alberta. "People out here aren't going to say that. People there may say it.

"I don't look at it at all as I'm quitting on anything. When it involves family and personal things that you throw everything into, you have to make certain decisions."

If family and Red Deer are so important for you, why did you sign up here for 3 years in the first place?



QUITTER!

Whether we want to call it quitting or not is semantics. Lou and him had an understanding that he could step down during any offseason if he felt that was the right choice and he is making that choice, there isn't anything wrong with that.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

Unless in Sutters mind 2 years is actually equals 3 years than he is a quitter.

Then maybe it's Lou's fault for making that deal.

Lamoriello said he does not have a coach in place to replace Sutter and insisted he has not been conducting a search for a replacement the past few weeks.

"No. There was certainly nothing contemplated or looked upon," Lamoriello said. "Now we will have to make those decisions.

Is he serious?

When decisions are made because of family, you have to respect them. I wish him the best.

And now Brent Sutter joins Needmymommy as someone I have zero respect for. He signed a three year contract. And to make leaving worse he waited and waited while potential coaches signed elsewhere. Low class all the way.

But breaking the terms of a contract (meaning creating problems for management) loses some of that respect though.

It sounds as if the "Family" part of his life had more to do with him leaving than anything, and if that's the case than I have no problem with him walking away.

Best of luck Brent!

Lou also said he hasn't contemplated a replacement in that article. Hopefully, this is just typical Lou-speak.

Lou-speak or not -- to not have contemplated a replacement -- that's just plain dumb.
